UFC Hall of Famer Pat Miletich was arrested for driving under the influence in Illinois on June 29, according to a report from the Quad City Times.

Miletich, 52, was pulled over by Moline Police at 12:30 a.m. local time and booked into Rock Island County Jail on DUI charges at 2 a.m. Arrest reports did not indicate whether Miletich was above or below the legal intoxication limit of .08.

The first-ever UFC welterweight champion previously pleaded guilty to operating while intoxicated in Scott County District Court on March 20, 2019 after being arrested on Sept. 8, 2018. He was sentenced to a one-year unsupervised probation that was dropped after he completed in-home detention and a 12-hour course for drunk drivers.

Miletich is scheduled to face former professional boxer Michael Nunn in a kickboxing match on July 18.

After his time as a UFC fighter, Miletich became one of the sports most renowned coaches at Miletich Fighting Systems in Bettendorf, Iowa, where he oversaw champions such at Matt Hughes, Jens Pulver and Tim Sylvia. More recently, Miletich has served as a commentator for Legacy Fighting Alliance.
